    We had a Tedelex TV game machine (Emerson Arcade elsewhere) when I was growing up. Great, simple games on that! Eventually one of the remotes broke, so I rewired one of the newer 8 bit system remotes and it was back! Games like Tanks A Lot, Breakaway, Bowling, Space Raiders, Spiders, Robot Killer.

    The first couple Doom games. Those are some good memories.

    I also enjoyed Jazz Jackrabbit but that's more recent.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.

    Way of the Exploding Fist. Commodore 64 2nd-person fight game and first of it's kind. Head-to-head meant genuine sparring because reflexive blocks and dodges really worked and the mechanics were clean - none of this dumb button mashing the genre wallows in now.

    Monopoly is great when you're doing the math (statistics) and other players calculate turn-by-turn as well.

    The entire Civilization series. Anything Sid Meyer.

    Shogun Total War. Game designers not only studied The Art of War, they built the game from it. You can actually win this by reading Sun Tsu and applying his maxims.

    Microsoft Freelancer. The radio chatter, and the wonderful nuanced ironies of that universe. Such atmosphere! I also played Elite in 1985, essentially the original Freelancer and way ahead of its time.

    Marbles. My son and I shoot them at our opposing plastic soldier armies. Haggling ad hoc rules is a sport in itself.

    Snowfight is a classic... Flash game. Still a favorite, especially with two people cooperating on the controls.

    Paper & dice RPGs, with my clueless boy friends after reading Jung.

    Tetris.

    Don't worry, I've been through that already! And chess, of course. Some people just don't have the patience, idiot or not. After local chess tournaments I used to have the weirdest chess dreams!

    My squirmy son and I play a claustrophobic game we call Ghost Chess, which incorporates a cardboard partition clamped in the center of a folding board, so it's rather like Battleships. Pieces set up perpendicular to normal, so half one's army is just an echo used to track your movements... bishop to bee-three and so forth. The king though is a ghost and not mirrored - therefore one only calls "king moved" and the opponent must guess where.

    Sounds interesting!

    I do realy like made up games as they are the most dynamic sometimes.

    When I was in my early teen me and my bet friend created a game replicating fleet battles between Star trek universe ships (Micromachines made excellent ships).

    My large collection of ships was divvied up and then attacks were based on dice rolls and point values assigned to each ship.

    I think i still have a copy of the rules and point values around somewhere...

    Hang onto it! When you have children that kind of play is good compromise between randomly zooming around the room and brooding over dull stuff.

    I miss the sounds of old games. Some musical solutions to the constraints of early audio chips, were true genius. Anyway it's certainly a lost genre.

    Yars' Revenge (Atari) made a virtue of buzzy noise.

    Dune (PC) was probably the climax of that genre. A game produced by Virgin. It captured the air of that novel perfectly.

    A nice track from Dune, converted to MP3: http://www.taconf.com/tom/mp3/dune/%...tch%20Tuek.mp3 This one you (Paul) don't hear until discovering yer true soulmate. The music is the only hint you're supposed to pick her, to progress the game.

    Even the sandworms get their own track, and groove in time to it.

    I actually said "Indiana jones adventure games" Games in plural. Including but not limited to "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis." The other one is IJ and the Last Crusade. Havent played Temple of Doom but it doesnt look promising.
    Im not including The incredible machine to the collection as I didnt like it.

    Tetris, pacman, Tekken, Sonic the hedgehog. All old school games really, there aren't too many good ones these days, either that or if they are good they tend to be too realistic. A game is called that for a reason :wink:.

    Definaitely pacman. When I was quite a bit younger than I am now my mom bought me one of those little miniature arcade-like pacman games for christmas. I played it non stop and the highest score I ever achieved was one in which the score had to reset itself back to 0 twice (Basically I went from 0 to 1,000,000 or however many it went up to twice) because the game couldn't handle that high of a score.

    I bought a Systema handheld goal keeping game in the 4th grade (20 years ago!) for R28 with pocket money I had saved. Black and white LCD, one of those flat disc teeters for sound (the kind you get in electronic watches), alarm and time display. It was the shit when I got it and I wasted many hours on that thing! It used one of those pinky nail sized batteries, but it didn't last long enough so I connected a penlight battery to it. I dropped it in the swimming pool once and my father could not fix it, so I opened it up and fixed it myself (I was so proud of myself). I still have it and it still works!

    Well, don't ask me where my mind was at when I saw the title "What's Your Favourite Old Game(s)?". I must have been thinking "olde" games, because tablut and hnefatafl instantly came to mind. These are two of several "tafl" games, where the players have asymmetrical roles playing either the Swedes or the Muscovites. Tablut is a simple version of tafl games and can be played using checker pieces on the lines of a checkerboard, instead of the squares. Tafl games are asymmetrical games, something we don't often see in board games. One player's objective is to get his king to the edge of the board (ie, escape); the other player's objective is to capture the king.

    There's also an interesting card game, although I forget the name, for two players that uses the 1 through 10 cards of three suits. One suit is shuffled and stacked face down. Each player holds one of the other suits as his/her hand and hidden from the other player. The top card of the stack is turned over as in rummy. Each player selects one card from his/her hand to try to "buy" the turned over card, and holds it face down on the table. Both players turn their selected cards over simultaneously. The higher card wins the card from the stack. In the case of a tie, I forget, but probably no one wins the card. When the stack is spent, each player totals the values of the cards thus won, and the larger score wins. It's very psychological, and if the spent cards are left face up on the table (and I think they are), each player knows what remains in the other player's hand.

    Then there's Laska, an interesting board game created by world chess champion Emanuel Lasker, played similar to checkers where captured pieces are not removed from the board, but are placed under the capturing piece, which forms a stack (moved as one piece). When a stack is "jumped" the top piece is removed and placed under the jumping piece/stack. Pieces can be captured, but they can also be rescued.

    As for modern "old" games, I think Steve Jackson's Car Wars is a riot, so is Champions and also Call of Cthulhu.
    Grief is the price we pay for love. (CM Parkes) Our postillion has been struck by lightning. (Unknown) War is always the choice of the chosen who will not have to fight. (Bono) The years tell much what the days never knew. (RW Emerson) Reality is not always probable, or likely. (JL Borges)

    Ya, I'm in the North American English realm there are French and Spanish North American ones too, but I went out of my way to try and find one of the few English language versions in the province.

    I'm not that good though, I'm like middle range gold league. Frankly, I think you have to be really, really bad at the game to be in the bronze league.

    Agreed. Some friends of mine that never played SC1 or any other strategy games either for that matter ( Counter strike guys) got straight to silver and pretty quick made their way to gold. I cant imagine how bad you have to be to be in bronze league.

    Well, I do not know what qualifies for an old game. But guess that depends on how old you are yourself.

    Some games from another millennium that I still play from time to time:

    Super Smash Bros (N64)
    Mario Cart 64 (N64)
    Civilization II (PC)
    Starcraft (PC)
    Diablo II (PC)
    Half-Life (PC)

    Haha, I managed to move up to platinum pretty quick, and I'm like 4th in plat right now, I don't play that much so I don't think I'll get to diamond soon if ever.

    Maybe Dungeon Master. Followed by Freelancer, Lord of Midnight and Elite. Baldur's Gate series.

    One that is not a really very old game (past 2000) but still EXCELLENT and more over, it didn't become so popular: Space Rangers 1 and better 2. Space Rangers 2 is OUTSTANDING. You have all. RPG, adventure, FPS, arcade, text adventure, RTS, wargame, name it, you have it. In addition, Space Rangers is intelligent, full of humour. It's a russian game.

    I don't like chess at all. I prefer Go by 100 times.

    Pool of Radiance on the Commodore 64. 5 1/2 floppies and an external drive. Must have taken at least eight minutes to load.
    All four Dragonwarrior's on the 8-bit Nintendo. I hand mapped all the "dungeons" on graph paper.

    BTW, do you know that a lot of these games are existing now as freeware.
    There is a remake of Elite called Oolite, pretty good with a LOT of extensions and adventures.
    Dungeon Master is existing as well, not to talk about Lord of Midnight.

    .Day of tentacles ! Maybe the BEST game ever
    .Indiana Jones fade of Atlantis
    .Simon the sorcerer
    .Discworld
    .PRISONIER OF ICE (short but what a great EXPERIENCE)
    .Duke nukem 3D
    .Gabriel night
    .Sam and max (At the time I was a bit disapointed (began to weird at the end), but with the time I like it much since dosbox, love the humour. Maybe the BEST graphics ever for this kind of game).
